Can you upload your working?
You use the two initial conditions to determine k and c.
Note I guess P is in millions of people?

So when P= 50 million , t=0 and P= 60million, t=10 years right?

P=50 when t=0. Otherwise it doesn't make sense. It should state in the question though.

Why make things difficult for yourself? Try rotating your book 180 degrees. That should make things easier.
